HTPC/Gaming builds, suggestions needed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay, here are two candidate builds.
https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/M...spx?ID=9779548

This is the more expensive and could really be used as a nice gaming system. It is pushing the limits of my budget which is right around $600 (less is better of course).

And then this:
https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/M...spx?ID=9779648

AMD Based with onboard video (although even with the card I have from the first rig it would still be cheaper than the first option).

I have a dvd drive, and hard drive already, so I dont think Im missing any bits. I also dont need tuner and dont record anything, I just download what I watch or use DVDs.

The case is new, but the reviews on it are really good- the PSU I chose because although it is also new most of the reviews mention that it is the perfect fit for the case (not suprising) and quite good.

My goal is to have a medium power gaming rig that is quiet, looks good, and can play HD content either off disk or an internal blu ray which I will get later.

Would love to hear any suggestions comments or anything else that may help me finalize the box!

Thanks!
